Trex Vs. Wood
Everyone loves the natural look of wood but hates all the painting, staining and sealing. Wood decks of all types, including pressure-treated wood, ipe, cedar or redwood, require extensive upkeep.
Trex was designed with the beauty of wood decking, but not all the maintenance. Their high-performance, eco-friendly composite boards withstand years of sun, sleet and snow, keeping their rich color. Through it all, they have never felled a single tree. So, when comparing composite decking vs. wood, there’s no competition as to which decking material is best.
Whereas Trex composite decking is low-maintenance, wood decks:
1. Can rot, split, swell, twist and fade
2. Crack from insect infestation
3. Require annual painting, staining or sealing
4. Splinter easily
5. Contribute to deforestation
